The Crystal

Located in the heart of the London Docklands ‘The Crystal’, a new visitor destination, has been hailed by the Mayor of London as a new landmark building in East London to kick-start the Green Enterprise District. Townshend Landscape Architects were appointed by Siemens to design a ‘sustainable urban landscape’ as part of their Cities Initiative. The brief was to ensure that high quality public spaces were designed and delivered for the use and enjoyment of both visitors and the local community, ensuring the public space remains in public ownership.

从一开始的目标是创造独特的城市景观,这将为传统的“生态中心”提供另一种视角。这个想法是可以作为一个先例,如何可持续设计可以集成到城市广场和城市空间,在那里最初似乎很少有机会这样做。
The aim from the outset was to create distinctive urban landscape, one that would provide an alternative perspective to the stereotypical ‘ecology centre’. The idea was that this could be used as a precedent for how sustainable design can be integrated into city squares and urban spaces where there would initially seem little opportunity for doing so.

公共领域战略旨在鼓励更广泛的社会意识形态的转变,使“可持续性”更具吸引力,并允许人们参与该网站内的社会活动,其中包括当地的食物计划和社区花园来帮助促进这一原则。TunsHead景观设计师一直与纽汉伦敦Borough紧密合作,为伦敦和GLA设计,为中心建立一个“社区战略”的框架。这包括举办定期活动,研讨会,园艺天和城市养蜂的信息。
The public realm strategy was designed to encourage a shift in the broader social ideology, making ‘sustainability’ more attractive and allowing people to participate in social activities within the site, which includes local food programmes and community gardens to help foster this principle. Townshend Landscape Architects have been working closely with the London Borough of Newham, Design for London and the GLA to create a framework for establishing a ‘Community Strategy’ for the Centre. This involves hosting regular events, workshops, gardening days and information on urban beekeeping.

该项目的目标是MurAm“杰出”,以及国际LEED的“铂金”评级。景观设计旨在通过指定具有比标准方案低得多的体现能量的材料来减少该项目的生态足迹。使用的硬景观材料也被评为“A级”或更大的BRE绿色指南规范。指定的植物是气候敏感的,以减少水的消耗,进而减少了发展的维护要求。在草坪需要灌溉的地方,水是通过一种开创性的“黑水”回收系统来收获的,它利用建筑物的废水。除了提供视觉上吸引人的舒适空间之外,野生动物和植物的生物多样性的高值的增加也需要作为繁殖的一部分。景观设计旨在通过指定一系列精心挑选的植物来平衡这两种竞争因素,这些植物不仅看起来很好,而且为蜜蜂和其他昆虫提供了一种具有高蜜源的野生动物价值。当地的野花草甸和传统的花圃展示了这一潜力,希望人们能够启发自己去思考自己的后花园、阳台或窗框。
The project is aiming for BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ as well as the international LEED ‘Platinum’ rating. The landscape design aims to reduce the ecological footprint of this project by specifying materials with a much lower embodied energy than a standard scheme. The hard landscape materials used are also rated ‘grade A’ or greater with the BRE Green Guide to Specification. The plants specified are climate sensitive to reduce water consumption, in turn reducing the maintenance requirement of the development. Where irrigation is required for lawns, water is harvested through a pioneering ‘blackwater’ recycling system which utilises the waste water from the building. In addition to providing visually attractive amenity spaces an increase in wildlife and plants with a high biodiversity value were required as part of BREEAM. The design for the landscape seeks to strike a balance between these two competing factors by specifying a carefully selected a range of plants which not only look good, but provide a wildlife value with a high nectar source for bees and other insects. Native wildflower meadows and traditional flower gardens demonstrate this potential and it is hoped people will be inspired to think about their own back gardens, balconies or window boxes.
